We are Changing Lives

At Changing Lives we believe that everyone deserves a safe home, a rewarding job and a life free from addiction or abuse. We also believe that, given the right support, anyone can change their life for the better. By focusing on their strengths, potential and opportunities, we help over 17,000 people overcome their problems and live safe, successful, independent lives each year.

We have around 100 projects in England staffed by 500 dedicated staff. We help people experiencing homelessness, domestic violence, addiction, long-term unemployment and more, to make positive change – for good.

Our Mission

At Changing Lives, we believe that anyone experiencing a challenging time can be given the right support to change their life for the better. Our aim is to drive change to support more people in more communities. 

40 Days of Giving

This Lent, Changing Lives is introducing a #40DaysOfGiving challenge. Rather than giving something up, why not give something back? Most people choose to give up chocolate, sweets or alcohol over the 40 days of Lent, but this year, why not make a difference to the people we support instead? We’ve created a checklist of items in the highest demand across our 100+ projects. Help make a difference to someone’s life this Lent and donate one item from our checklist every day for 40 days.
